Valencia: The Movie/s
Have you heard that Michelle Tea’s queer classic, Valencia, has been made into a feature-length film? No? Consider yourself updated! Valencia: The Movie/s is a collaborative film project headed by Michelle Tea and filmmaker Hilary Goldberg. Twenty one queer filmmakers each shot a 5-7 minute short based on a chapter from the book. Illustrator Amanda Verwey helps visually tie the work together with stunning portraits of the 21 “Michelle” characters who vary in age, gender, size, ethnicity, style and era!
The 21 filmmakers include: Aubree Bernier-Clarke, Lares Feliciano, Hilary Goldberg, Sara St Martin Lynne and Michelle Lawler, Dia Felix, Silas Howard, Alexa Inkeles, Jerry Lee, Peter Anthony, Sharon Barnes, Cary Cronenwett, Courtney Trouble, Cheryl Dunye, Bug Davidson, Samuael Topiary, Olivia Parriott, Chris Vargas and Greg Youmans, and Jill Soloway.
